One observation nobody’s made yet is that Github has become the de facto standard place to distribute open-source projects. That means there are some network effects—for example, everyone (for some fuzzy value of “everyone”) knows how to get a project from Github in a few seconds.

There are about 6 million repos on Github. Github has about 3.5 million users. A search for “Common Lisp” on Github returns a little over 2700 repos.

For what it’s worth. Doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a good idea to migrate, but presumably having the info is better than not having it.
